Artist-in-residence SAIKONEON was established in April 2019, aiming to provide a space for research, creation and exchange of knowledge for various artists and designers of various boundaries. SAIKONEON is located less than two hours away from Tokyo under the magnificent natural environment of Mount Fuji, with a facility on the shores of Lake Saiko in Yamanashi Prefecture. We also have a partnership with upcoming creative space, “Gallery Tsukigime” located in Ikejiri-Ohashi, near Nakameguro and Daikanyama areas, one of Tokyo’s cultural hubs.
The residency program is accepting applications throughout the year. For the first year this year, our residency staffs and the partner gallery staffs will be selecting artists who can create and express exciting works, as well as artists with works that provoke our curiosity about their unique personality.
Through our residency program, we are aiming for artists to share their works and expressions to the world, and to make our residency a meeting place that stimulates the creative process of artists.
We would like to meet artists who can collaborate with us across regions and across countries shortly as well. We aim to be such a place where people say, “Something interesting happens if we are involved in this residency”.
